Why was the fight between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul cancelled?
With the fight scheduled for August 6 in New York, Tommy Fury was supposed to show up the week before for a press conference to make the official announcement, but due to complications on the trip to the United States, he was not present. He and his brother Tyson Fury have not been able to travel to that country as they have been linked to alleged crime boss Daniel Kinahan.
Jake Paul reported this day that they did everything possible to make the fight happen, but Tommy was not interested and literally hid, and there is already talk that he is looking for an opponent for August 6.
“I am devastated and very disappointed by the problems I have had getting into the USA. It is something that neither my team nor I could have anticipated. I have left this whole issue in the hands of my lawyers because it is something very serious and something that I hope to be able to solve soon. I’m sure this fight will happen when we figure this out,” Tommy Fury wrote on Instagram.
Agree to confront him, but in a neutral location.
Hoping that the fight can materialize soon, he assured that he is ready to face the youtuber in a neutral countryat any date and place.
“I want to clarify that I will fight in a neutral country that both parties can enter. This can be anytime, anywhere, anywhere.”
With the fight off, Jake Paul is looking for a new opponent and Hashim Rahman Jr. he is mentioned as the man who will step into the ring with Paul. He is a fighter with a record of 12-1, who lost his last fight, in April, but he would have more credibility than the other opponents the youtuber has faced.
